Addiction 2021.1

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I was disappointed to find this to be true.

I've only heard great things about them.

So my bike club is hosting a webinar on navigation devices for cyclists. The person giving the presentation (who is a friend of mine BTW) works for a company that makes bike GPS units. He clearly knows his company's unit AND the competition's, so my hope is that he will be as unbiased as he can be.

I think it may be tough for him to be totally unbiased, however.

I don't think anyone expects a person in that type of position to be unbiased.

I would like you to consider the person you replied to when I quoted you.

In Trsnrtr case, he honestly may not have known the history of the bar tape saga.

So sorry to hear about your brother and the difficult situation!

Shot was at 1400 yesterday and I started feeling detectably off by midnight when I got up to pee. By morning it was like a real medium-level flu, minus the cough. Bad muscle and joint symptoms. Suffered through a couple of meetings from 8-10 and then had to go to bed with the down comforter doubled over me and the Headache of the Gods. Now feeling a lot better, but I still like my head is full of insulating foam. Might order some hot and sour soup for supper. Expect to feel fine tomorrow.

Its hard to talk about but I haven't been on good terms with them since well before x mas. Ended up in an argument over the holidays. I feel like a punching bag at a boxing gym.
Sorry to hear that. I hope he recovers well.

Agree you should be fine tomorrow, other than maybe a little sore in the arm.

For some months now I've been scouring the internet for spokes, to build a tubular wheel around a Record hub I got from Trendsetter. This afternoon I needed a wheel, for adjustment purposes on my coupled bike. I want to get it all set up and then put it in its case.
The wheel I grabbed? Yes, that one. Only awaiting a tire.
